Places to Get Started
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being! As an individual and marriage therapist, I feel it is imperative to understand the root of an issue and assist you in gaining not only understanding, but achieving resolution that will enable you to live a fuller and happier life. Listening and supporting are vitally important, but that is not the only factor in helping you make permanent life changes; it is only the begninning. Symptoms such as depression, anxiety, relational challenges almost always sense when we understand how they came to be. Understanding the issue(s) and providing restorative interventions are what will enable you to truly feel better.
I pride myself on continued advanced clinical training to ensure that I am able to help clients to the best of my ability, and to only treat clients whose needs fall within my areas of experience. I have received specialized, advanced training, using EMDR for treating a wide variety of the most challenging of mental health issues, including traumas (from childhood or recent life events), panic disorders, anxiety and depression. Marriage counseling is another area of expertise and passion of mine. I absolutely believe in the institution of marriage, and am so excited to be able to assist couples in achieving the best out of their relationship.
"Together We Can Tackle What's Holding You Back"
As a Christian, I see each person as having been uniquely created by God, in His image. It is a privilege to assist clients in not only reaching their goals in therapy, helping them feel safe, valued and cared for throughout the process, but to help them experience the peace that is found in Him. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Hello, and welcome to my site. I'm glad you'e here and I hope to help you on your journey to feeling better. I am a licensed clinical social worker in a private practice setting who specializes in adult individual therapy and marital therapy. As a Christian, it is important to me to counsel in a way that is consistent with biblical principles.
I believe that symptoms are most often not dysfunctions, but rather, patterns of belieiving and relating that are no longer helpful in current life situations. I believe that most psychological discomfort exists for valid reasons and can be relieved once treated at the root of the problem. Complementary therapy approaches and techniques are integrated to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
